Publisher's Summary

In the village of Martindale, hundreds of miles north of the new English capital of Windsor, 16-year-old Silver Blackthorn takes the Reckoning. This coming-of-age test not only decides her place in society, Elite, Member, Inter or Trog, but also determines that Silver is to become an Offering for King Victor.
But these are uncertain times and no one really knows what happens to the teenagers who disappear into Windsor Castle. Is being an Offering the privilege everyone assumes, or do the walls of the castle have something to hide? Trapped in a maze of ancient corridors, Silver finds herself in a warped world of suspicion where it is difficult to know who to trust and who to fear. The one thing Silver does know is that she must find a way out . . .

Fantastic Listen

The Story
I went into this audiobook already knowing what to expect about the story itself. What I love about audiobooks though is having a new take on things, listening to someone else tell the story, and discovering things you missed or forgot about. The Reckoning is a test that all 16 year olds on the 1st July have to take, which determines which section they belong to, Trogs, Intermediates, Elites, or Members. From this group of teenagers, a few are selected to be an Offering, someone who is sent to Windsor castle to stay. What happens to these offerings no-one knows except that they never to see family of friends again. Reckoning follows Silver as she travels to Windsor castle as an Offering herself.

The Narrator
I love the narrator, Kat Rose-Martin. Her accent to me fits perfectly with the story and the area that Silver comes from. She really brings the characters to life, and just like the book, I could not put this down. My usual sleep routine is listening to a book for about an hour, Reckoning was one I had on for just "half an hour more". Thankfully I was off work over Christmas so my very late nights listening to Reckoning meant I didn't get too tied for work.
Reckoning audiobook is the perfect blend of story and narration mixed into one, and I really hope that Kat Rose-Martin gets to narrate the next book.

Final Verdict
Loved every second of this book and I know it will be one I listen to time and time again.
